The here and now... and what and why

Complacency is a trap. At least that’s what I was thinking when I up and left the comfort of a Yankee prep school gig, where I taught music, amongst other things, for 28 years. There was also that life long career as a composer, musician and artist.

First, it was a year in St. Thomas, USVI, working as a reporter and shooting photography and then, a year in San Agustin Etla, Oaxaca, Mexico.
Time passed.
More time passed and a year back in the Athens of America followed by a hasty return to Oaxaca where it is all happening.
A couple of years in San Sebastian Etla and now, just down the road in San Pablo Etla. Life is good.

You can find my music on Jango (World & latin - Worldbeat) and at iTunes and most online stores.

No room at the inn...

Entered without comment..... when I flew into Logan last night there was no room for my Learjet because the place was already packed with private planes whose owners were here for the Romney victory party.

Actually, I was in with the sardines in coach and when I got here, there were no cabs.  I lucked out and snagged one, told the driver to haul because I needed to get to the polls.  He did and I made it with 23 minutes to spare.  No line at all.  Over and done in less than two minutes.  I was so dazed and surprised I did not even buy something from the bake sales they always have out in the halls of the school, my local polling place.

Now to bathe in the tears of the defeated.
